Larry Eustachy Introduced As New Head Basketball Coach At Colorado State

After a bit of controversy -- Ernie Kent was reportedly set to take the Colorado State job before being vetoed -- CSU officially introduced Larry Eustachy as the basketball program's new head coach on Thursday. Athletic director Jack Graham called Eustachy the "right man" for the job.

"In Larry Eustachy, Colorado State has one of the most well respected minds in college basketball," said Graham. "Larry has been highly successful at every stop throughout his career. I know that he is the right man to lead Colorado State to new heights."
